Glühwein

by Chelle in


I recently decided to tell people I grew up in Germany- for the most part. The for the most part covers a multitude of explanations. Anyway with this new affinity for my German roots-yes yes I know next week I'll declare myself Australian- I decided to make Glühwein. I think that was one of my favorite things about Germany, being able to walk down the streets and sip hot spiced wine at Christmas time. This recipe is the best one I've tried, the sherry makes all the difference! 

To Make: 

1 bottle wine ( 2 buck chuck is great)

1 cup sugar

1 orange sliced

2 cinnamon sticks 

Whole cloves ( 4 per orange slice)

1/8 cup Sherry

This recipe is very proportional so it's easy to double or what have you.
